Following Gumi’s recent comment that the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB are haters and killers of Northerners, IPOB has stated that it is not after northerners, but against terrorists.
This was reportedly made known by the Media and Publicity Secretary of the secessionist group, Emma Powerful, in a statement on Thursday.
According to the statement, “The attention of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra has been drawn to the latest ranting and ridiculous claims by terrorist apologist, Sheikh Abubakar Gumi, that IPOB and Eastern Security Network were killing northerners.”
It also stated that, “No northern in any part of Biafra land can prove that he/she has at any time been attacked by IPOB or ESN. We are only chasing terrorists and bandits behind killings and kidnapping for ransom in our land.”
